RS21 and CQC147 - Way to go Tracey!




Do you know my new friend TraceyShe is one of the four extremely talented ladies I'm getting to know on the design team at CASology (don't forget to play!!), and she's a fellow Canadian! 

She must be even more talented than I thought, because she is having one heck of a week - one of her cards was chosen for this week's RetrosketchPLUS, she's been named a member of the Royal Court at ColourQ. (you have to go there, just to see what Ryan Gosling had to say about this week's colours! lol!)




In honour of Tracey, I've combined these two challenges. Way to go, Tracey!

PS - Thanks for the book recommendations - I've added them to my 'to read' shelf at Goodreads, which is an online app that helps you track the books you've read, what you thought of them, and (most importantly to me) it tracks all the books you've seen that you think you'd like to read, so that when you finish a book, you have a whole list of new ones to choose from. My next book is The Kitchen House, by Kathleen Grissom - highly recommended by a couple of my friends. Have you read it? What did you think?

I love the way you've simplified the sketch (sketches scare me) and nailed the colour scheme, so that it's still very CAS.

What a beautiful card, and how sweet that you made it for Tracey. She is such a great gal, and I am also so happy for everything she has accomplished this week. I read The Kitchen House last year, and really enjoyed it. It will make you happy you are Canadian, without the ugly burden of slavery in your country's past. I am reading Seating Arrangements right now, and it is quite good. I should see what else your readers have recommended.
